Hope everyone's doing well. School had started and it's been pretty busy. Before all that though, I had entered a contest hosted by the game I play, League of Legends. We had to take a character, as well as an in shop item and paint it with the theme of the New Lunar New Year. Unfortunately I didn't place, but I did get runner up. That at least got me around $30 dollars of prizes so that's not too bad. There was over 4,500 entries, so I guess that's something! :D It still pushed me a lot, and I think this is the first painting I've done with so many characters in it. :x
Before school had started I also did a speed painting of when I went to Bolsa Chica Wetlands in Huntington Beach. That was fun.
I also had fun doing an exercise on design where I take random shapes and try to make something out of it. :) I decided to just to some self portraits and then some of my boyfriend.
Soooooo...on to school :)
I'm taking Directing for Animators, Aesthetics, History of Animation and Background Painting at LCAD. Because I'm only taking 12 units, I decided to also take Visual Development at Kazone Art. That class is super fun, and Patrick Raines, the instructor, knows a lot and is helping me push my work. I still have a lot to learn, but it's been fun. I decided to combine the projects in Background Painting and the Vis Dev class, because the requirements are essentially the same. I'm continuing my Peter Pan project from last semester, so I will be doing pieces based on the dessert theme.
The first one I did was of Peter and Wendy in the nursery. Since they're still in London, I decided not to add the dessert aspect just yet.
The next scene I did for Background Painting. They're at Neverland now and Peter is showing Wendy his tree house.
And here's the work in progress for the final painting for that.
I still have some fixings I need to do on the drawing before I start painting on it, but that's that.
In Directing for Animators, we've been pretty much working on the storyboards for our Senior Film. I probably won't post the process of that until the final animatic.
As for the other two classes they're pretty much your typical Liberal Arts classes.
That's it for now. :)
